Swimming place takes place on a Tuesday afternoon. Each class goes swimming at Larkfield for two terms during the year. Pasteur class are going during terms 1 and 2. Curie class will be going during term 3 and term 4. Nightingale class will be going in terms 5 and 6.

All of this should be brought in a suitable waterproof bag.
